If you have already submitted your registration and need to add lunch, please call the TeenPact Office at 804-323-7051. If you are commuting from home and do not wish to purchase lunch, you may bring a sack lunch each day.

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Evening Sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis in class with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another. We often like to say, “TeenPact is so much more than what happens at the capitol!” Parents are invited as well.

 

Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay and observe the Four Day class. We love having parents learning right alongside their student! If you’re unable to stay for the class, please join us for graduation on Thursday beginning at 1:00 p.m. During graduation, students participate in a short mock legislative session, hear speeches from the elected officials, hear a charge from the Program Director, receive graduation certificates and much more!

 

Political Communication Workshop

April 12, 2019

The Political Communication Workshop allows students to explore different aspects of political communication and public presentation through activities and discussions that will challenge students in their public speaking skills. Attendees will participate in a day filled with academic material ranging from policy debates and mock legislative sessions to field experiences, not to mention continued interaction with like minded teens and curriculum that guides students towards Biblical truth.

 

Please arrive at the John A. Cherberg Building by 9:45 a.m. on Friday. TeenPact Staff will be stationed at various locations to help direct students to the classroom (Senate Hearing Room 3).

Camp

April 8-12, 2019

Students are invited to stay with the staff at Black Lake Bible Camp.  In addition to the time at the Capitol, staying at the camp gives students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment.  Students play games, participate in small groups, play Ultimate Frisbee, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director.  Time at Black Lake is an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis at the Capitol with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.

 

Lodging, transportation, breakfasts and dinners are included in the price of the residential camp fee of $160 for three nights or $200 for four nights.  To reserve your slot at the camp, please include this option at time of registration. 

NOTE: All students and chaperones staying at the camp should drop off luggage at the camp prior to arriving at the capitol on Monday.

 

Students who are not able to stay at Black Lake may join us for dinner and evening events at a cost of $10 per person. Students who are not staying at camp but would like to join for the evenings will be responsible for their own transportation.

 

You can follow this Map to Black Lake Bible Camp. Transportation will be provided during the week for those staying at the camp once they are dropped off at the Capitol on Monday.

This is a wonderful opportunity for adults to experience TeenPact as well. Often parents find they enjoy their week at TeenPact as much as their students!
